Functions is a project about the scientific explanations of love, the most mysterious, mistreated and desired emotion in the world. Countless disciplines tried to offer precise explanations, often with hilarious results. We found inspiration in quiz games and talent shows to create Functions, a game about love played in real time with the audience, that becomes the player choosing how to build a love story. At every junction the audience makes choices that influence everything happening on stage, including text, sounds, duration and final.
